Album: Neon Neon, Stainless Style (Lex)

Click to follow

'Stainless Style', a concept album about the life of motor mogul John DeLorean, comes encased in close-ups of a model with terrifying claws, sprawled inside an Eighties luxury car. The visual grammar matches the music: Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals) and LA hip-hopper Boom Bip have combined to create a peerless techno-pop opus that starts like a hybrid of Kraftwerk's 'Trans-Europe Express' and Jeff Wayne's 'War of the Worlds' and, with the help of guests including Har Mar Superstar and Spank Rock, proceeds through pastiches of Miami booty bass, mid-Eighties John Hughes movie soundtracks and electro-crunk.
